Missed Madeira

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

We heaved to during the night & at day break saw Porto Santo, in few hours we passed Madeira, leaving it on our West.  The anchorage there is bad & the landing difficult, it was not thought worth while to beat dead to Windward in order to reach it. Accordingly we steered for Teneriffe.  I was so seasick that I could not get up even to see Madeira, when within 12 miles.

This evening I feel a little better but am much exhausted.
